Carrie’s swingy, lightweight Benedetta Cardigan is a garment you’ll find yourself wearing over and over again. The fine-gauge garter stitch fabric is so soft and supple to wear, and so relaxing to work. You won’t get bored, though: the top-down seamless construction (no finishing required!) and lace- trimmed sleeves and cardigan openings make this easy knit interesting, but not complicated. The button placement creates a swingy, A-line silhouette that is flattering on just about everyone, and makes the sweater even easier to throw on and go.
